Class C RVs with Murphy beds are great for maximizing both sleeping and living space. Combining a sofa and bed into one piece of multifunctional furniture makes even the smallest Class C motorhomes feel spacious.

A Murphy bed is essentially a sofa by day that folds down into a bed at night. A thick mattress is stored vertically in the wall cabinet behind the sofa until it is time to rest.

Class C motorhomes lend themselves well to this floorplan because many drivers prefer a smaller vehicle for ease of maneuverability. Class C RVs with Murphy beds can be both smaller, easy to drive, and spacious on the interior.

Families will find Class C motorhomes with Murphy beds a great option. European-style van chassis Class C versions boast large dinettes, sofas, and up to six sleeping spaces.

It is easy to see why Class C RVs with Murphy beds are a great option. We have compiled a list of the ten best Class C RVs with Murphy beds to help you find your favorite.

RVBlogger Note: Some of the RVs we’ll feature may fit in the B Plus category. Since this subgroup is so fluid, we’ve included them in our discussion since they do meet our Murphy bed requirement. In addition, these motorcoaches have other features that fulfill the Class C standards.

What Is A Murphy Bed?

A Murphy bed is simply a bed that folds out of the way. They aren’t like foldable beds typically found in residential homes because they are hinged to the wall. The name is attributed to William L. Murphy, an early 20th-century inventor and entrepreneur who created a bed that folds out of the way, typically into a wall.

The concept is the same while Murphy beds don’t fold “into” an RV wall. The idea, of course, is to create a comfortable, durable sleeping space that doesn’t detract from the living space around it. This is what makes the Murphy bed such a fantastic option in an RV, especially if you have a large family and appreciate a spacious interior.

The 10 Best Class C Motorhomes with Murphy Beds

These Class C motorhomes all feature a Murphy bed in a variety of unique floorplans. Whether you want more space in the living room, the kitchen, or the bedroom, there’s a Class C on this list to accommodate you!

1. Entegra Coach Odyssey 26M

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The Ford 7.3L “Godzilla” engine

⛔ Couch is not the most comfortable option

  • Length: 28.7′
  • Engine: 7.3L V8 Godzilla
  • Chassis: Ford E450
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Yes, you heard that right—the Entegra Coach Odyssey 26M has a “Godzilla” engine. It’s powerful and industrious in its simplicity, at least as far as gasoline engines go, versus diesel pushers. The interior of the 26M is nothing new in the industry, but that’s a good thing, as Entegra is pushing simple form and function—quality over quantity.

The Murphy bed is located toward the back, leaving a standard couch behind when it’s folded away. The east-to-west bathroom always seems to work out for the best of the thousands of floor plans out there. It offers plenty of space with a long countertop, a sizeable shower, sink, toilet, wardrobe, and additional cabinetry.

2. Tiffin Midas 24MT

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The induction stove top is moveable, so you can take it outside for an outdoor cookout

⛔ On the low end of cargo carrying capacity at 1,500 lbs

  • Length: 25.3′
  • Engine: EcoBoost V6
  • Chassis: Ford Transit
  • GVWR: 11,000 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 2

As a Class C with a Murphy bed, the Tiffin Midas offers little in the way of sleeping space elsewhere. In fact, this is definitely a couple’s motorhome, though you can probably get away with sleeping more than two, especially if you have an air mattress with you.

Because it sleeps only 2, there is a ton of space elsewhere. The bathroom and central space are huge. The dinette area features a small table that you can swing out of the way when not in use. If you like portability, you’ll love the removable cooktop, so you can do your cooking inside or out.

3. Forest River Solera 24SRB

Forest River Solera 24SRB Floorplan Class C Murphy Bed

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Tons of cabinet, closet, storage, and hidden storage options throughout

⛔ TV is located right over the sink, in a head-banging position

  • Length: 25.4′
  • Engine: Mercedes Benz V6
  • Chassis: Sprinter 3500
  • GVWR: 11,030 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 4,200 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

This Solera Class C combines a Murphy bed with a slick, cool-temperature interior aesthetic that’s comfortable and relaxing. It’s loaded with storage options as well, with tons of closets in the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom and oversized drawers.

When the Murphy Bed is up, you have a standard couch alongside power theater seating, so there’s always plenty of room for everyone to sit and enjoy a movie or eat supper. The diesel Mercedes chassis is popular and known for its longevity and durability.

4. Winnebago Navion 24D

Winnebago Navion 24D Exterior Class C Murphy Bed

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Huge, U-shape dinette with swivel table

⛔ Bathroom is a little tighter than it looks on the floorplan

  • Length: 25′ 6″
  • Engine: Mercedes Benz V6
  • Chassis: Sprinter 3500
  • GVWR: 11,030 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The Winnebago Navion 24D is more of what some call a Class B+. But, for the purposes of finding you a home on the road, it’s a Class C with a Murphy Bed! Besides, once the Murphy bed is up and out of the way, you’ll feel like you have the living space of a Class C.

The slide-out is perfectly situated to maximize living space, provide a nice sleeping spot, and don’t get in the way of bathroom access whenever it’s in. The best part is that it definitely drives like a Class B+, with more maneuverability and control for first-timers.

5. Jayco Melbourne 24R

Our Pros and Cons

✅ 2+3-year warranty for 2 years of coverage on anything that goes wrong and 3 years structural

⛔ Low CCC for a Class C that sleeps 6

  • Length: 25.2′
  • Engine: Mercedes-Benz V6
  • Chassis: Sprinter 3500
  • GVWR: 11,030 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Yet another Class C with a Murphy Bed is the Jayco Melbourne, which features a Sprinter 3500 chassis. The repetitiveness is purposeful, however, as these motorhomes are fantastic and sit on a highly respectable chassis. The layout is similar to some of the other Class Cs on our list, but you also get Jayco’s excellent warranty with their version.

The interior space is phenomenal when the slide is out, and the Murphy bed is up. When it’s closed, you still have access to everything important on the inside.

The counter space is solid, and there are plenty of cabinets for storing dry goods and whatever you need. The bathroom is sizeable as well, even though the toilet sitting space is a bit tight, with a medicine cabinet and wardrobe.

6. Renegade Veracruz 30VRM

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Run the entire coach from your smartphone with the Vegatouch Mirror app

⛔ Bunk over the cab is a little small, though the motorized overhead shade helps

  • Length: 30.4′
  • Engine: Power Stroke V8
  • Chassis: Ford F550
  • GVWR: 19,500 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 12,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 3

If you’re looking for a Class C with a Murphy bed that also incorporates the latest smart home technology, the Renegade Veracruz 30VRM is the perfect option. The smart home control and configuration app is Vegatouch Mirror, and it’s available for iOS or Google Play devices.

This is one of Renegade’s most popular floor plans, and it’s easy to see why. Everything on the inside is arranged for increased space and comfort. It’s also designed for easy use, with two 110-volt breakers and everything labeled so you know what’s coming from your inverter and what’s coming from your generator.

7. Thor Quantum LP27

Thor Quantum LP27 Exterior Class C Murphy Bed

Our Pros and Cons

✅ King-size Murphy bed

⛔ Passenger seat in the cab doesn’t recline because the dinette is directly behind it

  • Length: 28.7′
  • Engine: Ford V8
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 8,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

There’s nothing quite as good in life as being able to kick back and relax on a massive king bed. Not only does the Thor Quantum feature a king, but it also happens to be a Murphy bed. You get maximum sleeping space and maximum living space when the bed is up. Who could argue with that?

Of course, a king bed does mean some concessions are made. The bathroom is a fairly small corner affair, though it has everything you need in a single space. The large and comfortable dinette offers plenty of eating and sitting space. However, it butts up against the passenger seat in the cab, meaning no reclining on long road trips if you’re riding shotgun!

8. Coachmen Leprechaun 260MB

Our Pros and Cons

✅ J-lounge is customizable for eating and relaxing

⛔ Toilet is jammed in pretty tight

  • Length: 28′ 5″
  • Engine: Ford V8
  • Chassis: Ford E450
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Leprechaun is Coachmen’s bougie Class C, and the 260MB fits the bill in every way. The fantastic interior aesthetic features a rounded U-dinette, huge windows, counter space, and rich, light brown cabinetry. The TV is in an odd spot but has a huge swivel arm for the best view.

The east-to-west bathroom features exceptional counter space, a medicine cabinet, and a linen closet. It also has a sizeable shower that will accommodate taller folks. This floor plan also includes washer and dryer prep, so no more planning ahead to find a laundromat.

9. Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5260

Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5260 Floorplan Class C Murphy Bed

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The sofa is huge and converts into a bed, along with the dinette

⛔ TV is a neck breaker

  • Length: 25′ 4″
  • Engine: Ford V8
  • Chassis: Ford E450
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 4 to 6 (depending on options)

The Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5260 lacks a defined bedroom; however, that’s not necessarily bad unless privacy is at the top of your list. No bedroom creates a level of interior customization that may surprise you. If you want a mobile office on wheels, it can do that.

If you want a huge sleeper for a massive get-together, it can do that. Looking for the perfect couple’s Class C with a Murphy bed? It can do that. The 5260 offers a number of possibilities, including a sizeable bathroom, excellent storage capability, and plenty of living space.

10. Tiffin Wayfarer 25RW

Tiffin Wayfarer 25RW Exterior Class C Murphy Bed

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Features slam-latch doors around the exterior for quick, easy access and security

⛔ Front entertainment center is a neck-breaker and removes the bunk option

  • Length: 25′ 6″
  • Engine: Mercedes-Benz V6
  • Chassis: Sprinter 3500
  • GVWR: 11,030 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

If you like multiple TVs, the Tiffin Wayfarer 25RW is happy to accommodate you. There are two TVs up front, with plenty of seating available for all that on-screen entertainment. The front TV does take the place of the over-cab bunk, but the remainder of this Class C handles up to 6 with a little room to spare.

As the fourth Sprinter 3500 on our list, this is an excellent chassis with durability and longevity to match its reputation. Despite it often being labeled as a Class B+, there is more than enough room here to qualify as a Class C, with wardrobes, a spacious bathroom, a ton of cabinetry, a slide-out pantry, and more.

Are Class C RV Murphy Beds Easy to Open and Close?

Are Murphy Beds Easy to Open and Close

Murphy beds in campers are very easy to open and close. Typically, all that is required is to fold out the sofa and fold down the mattress. You may also need to unclip a lock or fold down a support leg. The entire process usually takes less than five minutes. 

Some Murphy beds in RVs have a power button that makes folding down even easier. If you are accustomed to dinette beds and tri-fold sofas, the ease of a Murphy bed will be a welcomed surprise.

Do You Have to Make a Murphy Bed Every Day?

Do You Have to Make  a Murphy Bed Every Day

Many people are still unsure about the convenience of Murphy beds because they mistakenly think they have to make up the bedding with every use. Murphy beds today are easier and more efficient than ever.

Forget about wrestling new sheets onto the bed. You can literally just fold and unfold the Murphy bed with sheets, a comforter, and all. A significant portion of Murphy beds even have straps built in to help keep all of your bedding in place.

  1. Bit amazed that you would state that Jayco 26M is the best. The toilet is so small and so cramped that in order to do your business one would have to slide forward and back when sitting. Otherwise, you are correct, it is great!
